The Kiwanis Club of Glendale is coordinating talent for its third
annual Glendale Jazz Festival on June 28 at Glendale Community
College, 1500 N. Verdugo Road.
Nineteen bands are scheduled to perform on six stages under the
theme "A World of Jazz." The festival is from noon to 11 p.m.
A rich mixture of well-balanced jazz sounds is planned from smooth
and blues, straight-ahead and Latin, traditional Dixieland and
popular 1940s and 1950s swing bands, organizers said.
Besides great music and dancing, the festival committee is
encouraging strong restaurant and vendor participation. Proceeds
benefit many children's causes in Southern California.
Tickets are on sale for $20. Admission tickets including a gourmet
dinner are $60 each. There will be three seatings -- 3:30, 5:30 and
Sponsorship and vendor packages are available. For more
